The performance horses get 2-3 flakes of Grass (depending on the horse). JJ and Scrat get 1 flake of Alfalfa with the grass, Polly and BB get just grass no Alfalfa. So they eat the Alfalfa in a rush and pick at the Grass throughout the day and there is always some left over in the evening. And they get the same at night and they usually have a bit left over in the morning as well.
They get enough to keep them busy but not enough that they are never going to clean up......and right now hay is steady but the prices will go up very soon so it is expensive to feed free choice around here. And the big bales around here are either cheap and cruddy or expensive and nice. So they get fed what they get.......
Conformation is how far the horse CAN go,
Mind is how far the horse WILL go,
Training is how far it DOES go.
